History

Atlas Blue was established on 28 May 2004 and started operations on 26 July 2004, with charter operations from Morocco to France using a single Boeing 737-400. Another 5 Boeing 737-400s were transferred from Royal Air Maroc to expand services to Belgium, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Atlas Blue is owned by Royal Air Maroc (99.99%) and private investors (0.01%), and has 167 employees.

At the end of 2009, Royal Air Maroc bought Atlas Blue. The Atlas Blue website was shut down on 21 January 2010. By the end of 2010, the Atlas Blue brand ceased to exist.
